A singer who crossed the teen idol sound with a light girl group flavor, Marcie Blane had one huge hit, "Bobby's Girl," which made number three in late 1962. The single was saccharine, but incessantly catchy, with its low tremeloed guitar riffs; doofy male "You're not a kid anymore!" backup interjections; and Blane's wholesome vocals, preceded by some melodramatic spoken lines. She released about half a dozen other singles on the Seville label, several written, like "Bobby's Girl," by the Klein-Hoffman team. None were hits, though, and none were remarkable, falling into the most lightweight sector of the girl group trend. ~ Richie Unterberger
